The pressure valve is easy to replace, but not necessary all the time. Try opening it up and popping it off a few times. That usually does the trick. John "Moon Dog"

Subject: [Amel Yacht Owners] hot water pressure valve leaking and solar hot water
After DE-winterizing our santorin i discovered that the pressure valve is leaking each time the hot water tank is fill by the fresh water pump.
The heating element is not hooked up so do i need to bleed the system? .. the tank looks like it is fairly old so i'm not opposed to replacing it.
If i do that I am considering installing a solar panel (heliatos) for heating up the water when i'm not using the engine or 110. Any recommendations on new tank if that is what is needed.
